I know people like to be acknowledged on their day, at least I do. Have wondered what people consider their most important birthday? 13, 15, 21, 30, 50, 65 or whatever? Would love to hear what your BIG BIRTHDATE is.

The sound of the wild, but if there is no one there, does anyone hear their howls?

Grace Jones and Pete Townsend at two celebrities who share your birthdate, Fintpops, May 19. Don't know your age so don't know if these names will even ring a bell for you. Anyhow the people on Braingle are out here wishing you a Very Happy Birthday.

Well 'tis May 21st. Mr. T, the TV star turned 62 today. If you watched The Voice last night you would have heard "Somebody That I Used to Know" which has been #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was made famous by Gotye, an Australian singer who turned 34 today. And I am sure you all remember Raymond Burr who played Perry Mason on TV. Sadly he is no longer with us, but this was his birthday. Did you know he was also in the original Godzilla movie and he also starred in Rear Window?

OK, enough of the trivia. Today shareen12 shares this BIRTHDATE with the above people. So all you Brainglers out there, help me extend a Great Big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to shareen12 with many more to come.

Hey The_Spider is celebrating his birthday today. Am not sure if he is spinning a web out there somewhere or is waiting to slam his trap door on some unsuspecting prey. Everyone join me in wishing him a great HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Others celebrating birthdays today are Apollo Anton Ohno, 32, the Olympian speed skater, Naomi Campbell, 44, a well known model with a temper and Daniel Bryan, 33, a wrestler who has been both US and World Heavyweight champion. Richard Wagner and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Sir Laurence Olivia were all born on this day. Some very talented people claim the 22nd as their birthday.

Well let's see, Drew Carey turned 56 today and Joan Collins reached the big 81. She has been around for a little while, and I don't think she has updated her photos at all. Oh don't get me wrong, at that age I wouldn't be updating mine either. LOL

â—¦May 23, 1929 "The first talking cartoon of Mickey Mouse, The Karnival Kid, was released."
â—¦May 23, 1934 "American bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde were ambushed by police and killed in Black Lake, Louisiana."
â—¦May 23, 1948 Joe DiMaggio hits 3 consecutive homeruns
â—¦May 23, 1953 Schools first use Cliff's Notes
â—¦May 23, 1966 "The Beatles release ""Paperback Writer"""
â—¦May 23, 1977 "Supreme Court refuses to hear appeals of Watergate wrong doers H R Halderman, John Ehrlichman & John Mitchell"
â—¦May 23, 1988 "Maryland stops sale of cheap pistols on Jan 1, 1990"
â—¦May 23, 1994 Funeral services are held at Arlington National Cemetary for Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
â—¦May 23, 2003 The euro exceeds its initial trading value as it hits $1.18 for the first time since its introduction in 1999.
OK that covers 90 years of headline news.

Now Braingles news for today is we have two ladies who are celebrating their birthday. Again, I don't know how old either one is, but they are both members in good standing. So let us have a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY for auntie sis and gaylewolf. Hoping you both have a great day with family and friends, lots of presents and all the cake you can eat.

Hey I'm back with bits of trivia regarding this date in history - May 29. This is the date that our fellow Braingler, flyfisher, is celebrating his birthday so we are all wishing a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO FLYFISHER with friends and loved ones, presents and balloons and lots and lots of cake.

â—¦May 29, 1942 "Bing Crosby, the Ken Darby Singers and the John Scott Trotter Orchestra record Irving Berlin's ""White Christmas"", the best-selling Christmas album in history, for Decca Records in Los Angeles."
â—¦May 29, 1953 "Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay are the first people to reach the summit of Mount Everest, on Tenzing Norgay's 39th birthday."

â—¦May 29, 2010 "Actor, director and artist Dennis Hopper died - age 74 - USA"




Michael Jackson had two sisters with this birthday - Rebbie and LaToya with Rebbie being 6 years older. Also sharing this day are Melissa Etheridge, a great singer, and then two TV actors, Anthony Geary, who played on the soap, General Hospital, for years and Adrian Paul who made the ladies swoon as "The Highlander". Also sharing this date for their birth were two very famous men who have passed - John F. Kennedy and Bob Hope.

So flyfisher with all this added information about your birthday now you have some trivia questions and answers to play your own game with. HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Well folks, I just went into the files and found that boxs2win has a birthday today, but has not been on line for 52 some days. Sorry to see an account go that long without attention, but knowing that my own did when I was ill, I will still send out a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISH to boxs2win, hoping someone will check the account.

Aw Man, I blew it. One of my favorite people I just plain missed. And my MOUSE is giving me problems. I will try again to send out a HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISH to my friend, Jaycr His birthday was on June 3rd and even though I had it written down, I did miss it when I did a fast check the other night. So sorry my friend. It's the thought that counts, right?

And I have another friend who admits to having a June birthday, but she refuses to divulge that actual date, so I am going to include her on this crazy card. Snappytom from Down Under does have a birthday in JUNE and to make sure I don't forget her like I did Jaycr I am including her in this wish.

Hope you both have enjoyed celebrating your birthdays with lots of friends, family, and assorted loved ones, eating lots of fabulous and fattening cake, and getting whatever your hearts desired. Hugs from Grayma V to you both.

LOL, bluegrass! Are you sure that is Miss Froggygg? Isn't she just beautiful all decked out in her finery? Wish I looked that good in my bathing suit. In fact I wish I looked that good in any suit. But Froggygg is a great friend to all of us and we love her dearly.

Boy let me tell you, June 4th is almost a celebratory as July 4th. We have three people who are celebrating their birthdays today. Our friends, FatHead, bridgecat and jamsam4, who hasn't logged in since 4/25. Hope she s still around. Anyhow HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALL OF YOU.




Celebrities sharing this date are Angelina Jolie and Russell Crow both 39. Boy she sure aged better than he did. Dr. Ruth is 86 and she has had a word or two to tell about. Does anyone besides me remember Michelle Phillips, 70? She is the last surviving member of the Mamas and Papas. Dennis Weaver and Rosalind Russell also shared this birthdate but have both passed. I remember Dennis in Easy Rider.

Well referring to my first post of June 4th, I guess I am the one without any teeth, or mind or memory for that matter. I did it again, missed a birthday, and again it is one whom I have known for a long time here on Braingle. Over there in England on June 7th JODOCROCO celebrated her birthday and as I say I missed getting a message up so we could all wish her a very Happy Birthday. Sorry Jodie. Again, 'tis the thought that counts, right?

Ellie Kendrick the young lady who played Anne Frank in the movie by the same name was born in London on this date in 1990. She acted alongside Helen Mirren in Prime Suspect 7: The Final Act.
Sonya Walger was also born in England on this date in 1974. She co-starred in The Mind of the Married Man with Mike Binder. She is also the supporting English actress who has had recurring roles on FlashFoward, Common Law, and Lost.

Well a dear friend Mocha613 is celebrating her birthday today. And yesterday again, I missed a student from California by the handle of, and I am hoping I have this correct, talaisawesome. Sorry I slipped up on that one tala. I have my list made out and think I have everyone covered and then I come back and find out I have fouled up again. So I'll give you some famous people born on the 12th and then on the 13th. Hey Mocha, have you ever been suspicious because your birthday was on the 13th? Particularly since today is Friday the 13th. How many times have you been aware your birthday did fall on a Friday?


George H. W. Bush and Jim Nabors we both born on this 12th day of June.
And on June 13th the Olsen twins, who shared the role on Full House as at six months old labor laws would not allow one child to be in front of a camera for the length it took for some scenes. Also born on this day was Steve O who starred with Johnny Knoxville on the reality show "Jackass". I was never convinced either one of them was playing with a full deck. Tim Allen, Ally Sheedy, Malcolm McDowell and Richard Thomas also call June 13th their date of birth.

June 13, 1977 Convicted Martin Luther King Jr. assassin James Earl Ray is recaptured after escaping from prison three days before.
